Introduction to big data processing with Apache Spark

Speaker: Volodymyr Lyubinets

Stream: «Highload Dev Conf»


In this talk we’ll explore Apache Spark – the most popular cluster computing framework right now. We’ll look at the improvements that Spark brought over Hadoop MapReduce and what makes Spark so fast; explore Spark programming model and RDDs; and look at some sample use cases for Spark and big data in general.
This talk will be interesting for people who have little or no experience with Spark and would like to learn more about it. It will also be interesting to a general engineering audience as we’ll go over the Spark programming model and some engineering tricks that make Spark fast.
